    Jazzmaster .... ???

    On a cheap guitar no .... but $2200 is a lot of money and more attention to detail should be paid. In my humble opinion of course.

    Some Suhr guitars have them and they look fantastic.

    Pros .... A. I was most concerned about the neck but even though its a 1 5/8 nut width its very fat so I actually like it B. Nice light ash body. C. Nice tall frets D. Sounds killer, I love these Lollar pickups! E. One of the negative things I read about Nash guitars was that the frets were sharp and not finished correctly. Not on this guitar, rolled edges, perfect smooth frets, thick rosewood slab board. E. The controls work perfectly and there are several different tones you can get by moving dials, switches etc. F. I emailed Nash guitars with a question I had and Bill Nash got right back to me on a Sunday, plus he was super nice. That's pretty cool Cons .... A. For $2200 you would think you could get real clay dots ... not faux clay dots. B. The knobs were white, the pickup covers ugly parchment grey and the switch tip cream. Personally I think all this stuff should match but I guess that's just too difficult .... So I changed it all out to black. C. I'm not sure if its the big single coils or a bad ground wire but it buzzes like crazy if you take your hands off the strings/guitar. I'll have my guitar tech look at it or maybe someone here knows about that stuff. D. Signed with a sharpie plus guitar ID with a sharpie... really? Cute and all that but I think they could do better. Stamp the serial number onto the neck plate for example?

    What's Spinnin' ..

    I'm not into todays pop or rap ... In fact I hate it. But this is sooo good. R&B, Soul, Rock, Jazz ... high quality well engineered double album (that has more cuts than the CD) all 4 sides are great. Killer phat with a PH bass. Echos of Prince and Michael Jackson. Twenty sometin' bucks from Amazon.com. I cant stop listening to it. BUY IT.

    I've been shipping/selling a few guitars recently and I like to pack things well. Sometimes I'll wrap bubblewrap around the headstock or in rare instances I'll put a couple of sheets on the top of the guitar in the case (if it's a loose fit). My question is this >>> Will the bubblewrap react with the finish of the guitar and cause any damage or discoloration? Thanks!

    In my internet search for a Jazzmaster I ran across lots of positive reviews for Suhr. I know there are a few Suhr aficionados at the HFC and I was just wondering which guitars do you guys really like? Post pics if you're into it. Thanks!
  9. That silver phantom is to die for. I'd buy it right now if I wasnt downsizing myself GLWTS

    Wow, I really like that. Thanks! Also i saw some Jaguars I really liked, another possibility. It's nice having a lot of guitars to sell, I don't have to worry about saving every cent to pay for the new one.

    Anyway, Yeah. I pulled the trigger on the Nash. I read both negative and positive reviews on the internet. It seems that some people take this whole JM very seriously, Almost like the LP guys! I'll let you know when it arrives, I'm worried that the neck might be too thin for my tastes but I made sure it's returnable, I'll just be out the return shipping.

    People have been trying to get me to buy G&L for years. Knowledgeable people. I just cant get past the headstock. It's me, not you.

    I would but I'm not into that color ... i have considered building my own though out of Warmoth parts.

    I have base plates in both my Strats, high end electronics and pickups. i'm just not bonding with them. I loved my R0 immediately. The SG too after I did a little work on it. Maybe Im just a 24.75 guy at heart?
